Letter: Shaw can handle changing educational landscape

Letter: Shaw can handle changing educational landscape
Oct 24, 2019

To the editor:
Edina’s tradition as a community that proudly prioritizes its young people runs long and deep, and nowhere is our collective commitment to children more apparent than in our ongoing support of Edina’s public schools. On Nov. 5, we have an important opportunity to once again support our schools by casting a board of education ballot for Janie Shaw.

The pace of change in the education landscape presents both new challenges and growing opportunities within communities like ours. Janie Shaw will join the Edina School Board as a leader who is well prepared to meet this dynamic moment. With vast classroom and leadership experience and a passion for serving children, she will competently steward our schools while maintaining unquestionable fidelity to the best interests of all of our students. Janie has been highly engaged in Edina Public Schools and has served for seven years as a member of the Parent Leadership Council, where she has worked collaboratively to question the status quo, share new ideas and create solutions that have been successfully implemented.
Beyond her role as a proven community leader, Janie has also held important roles in the business world where she developed relevant skills in the area of strategic business management. Janie is poised to “hit the ground running,” with a capacity to ask tough questions and contribute a voice of experience. She has an impressive track record of building productive relationships and a keen understanding of the value of effective communications with all constituencies. At this time of immediacy – a time that demands confident and collaborative leadership – Janie Shaw is ready and well prepared to serve.

The members of our school board play an important role in maintaining a community-wide circle of trust that includes parents, teachers, administrators and, most importantly, our children. Through her hard work on behalf of Edina’s kids, Janie Shaw has earned both my trust and my vote. With confidence in Janie Shaw’s commitment to Edina’s long tradition of prioritizing our children, I urge you to join me on Nov. 5 in casting a ballot for Janie Shaw.
